A Park to be Proud Of

It is a vast, well kept urban park with fascinating and quaint Victorian architecture which has a wide appeal no matter what the season. As a local amateur artist, I often... More

A wonderful park with something for everyone. Boating lake ( boats for hire in the summer) two exciting adventure playgrounds. Pets corner, Bowling Greens, Tennis Courts and outdoor gym. Plenty of room to play foot ball, hide and seek, and even sledging ( when it snows). The park has a collection of interesting sculpture and a well established maze. All... More

This is one of the best parks I have ever visited and the cafe is excellent. I love the walks round the park and the boating lake. Nothing I dislike.

Saltwell park is brilliant, a huge place with lots to do all year round, loads of events take place throughout the year. The Tower Cafe serves reasonably priced delicious food, there is a Boating Lake, great place to feed the ducks, Mini Farm, & an Aviary. My granddaughter loves it.

I visit this park on at least a monthly basis. It's great for kids with plenty of space to run around in. In the summer when it's busy there is still enough space for you not to feel crammed in. There are plenty of different areas as well to enjoy. Lots of events take place throughout the year. We have... More
